This is my first post on the forum so hello everyone…
I’ve recently moved to north London from East and so to keep up with mates I’ve decided to get myself a bike, being more into classic cars than bikes I decided on a car brand bicycle.
So I bought an NSU. The company allegedly stopped making bicycles in the late 60’s but this looks decidedly new(ish)...
I'm interested to find out more - does anyone here know anything about them?http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NSU-bicycle-M ... MR:GB:1123
All the best,
Correct it is new-ish...my guess in 1990s, NSU, the original company, was purchased by Volkswagen in the late 1960s (69 I think).
NSU did stop making bicycles in the 1960s...your bike appears to have many components common to roadster/hybrid style bikes through the second half of the 1990s to the present day - guess it was made in the far east.
OK for a £60 runabout, but by no means interesting or remotely classic (ever).
Here's a real NSU below, and that would be interesting.
